Bandung Factory Outlet Shopping in Jalan Riau

Bandung Factory Outlet Shopping in Jalan Riau
Jalan Riau in Bandung is one of the well known places for their factory outlet shopping and some of the top outlets are found in this area such as Heritage, Secret and many others names.

For anyone who has little time in Bandung, I recommend you make your way here to do your shopping as it is one of the best places to get children's or kids clothes, and also some pretty awesome stuff for the women.

The list below is not in order but based on the popular factory outlets in Jalan Riau. Again, this article is based on my trip here in 2009, I am sure many new outlets have mushroomed while some of the popular ones are still here.

Jalan Riau Factory Outlets in Bandung

Jalan Riau is the common name, but the main street here is actually called Jalan R.E. Martadinata, in the Citarum area of Bandung.

For those coming here form the west side, you will easily see a MayBank building as a landmark. From here, you walk in and it will be outlet after outlet all the way.

Bandung The Secret Factory Outlet

1. The Secret Factory Outlet

Located at Jalan Riau is The Secret, which is the first outlet you see when you get there. Nice design and very modern, the decor is one of the best around from what I have seen.

The area is divided into three areas. The main adult shopping, a courtyard with toilets, free WI-Fi and some stalls selling food and drinks. Then they have a kids section on the opposite side of the building.

Shopping for kids is a haven at these factory outlets as there are just so many choices for you. Top brands and for all ages with really nice designs. Not like the ones you get in Tesco or Giant here.

Oh yeah, for the women, this place has some great shopping too. So remember the name 'The Secret Factory Outlet' in Jalan Riau.

2. Heritage Outlet 

Towards the end of the main street is a traffic junction with all four corners dominated with factory outlets. It is here where you will find the Heritage Outlet. 

Apparently, the Heritage outlet building is one of the old Dutch influenced architecture which has been refurbished to maintain its classical look. 

It is connected to another huge factory outlet called Cascade, and the items found there are pretty good as well. 

Terminal TAS Bandung

3. Terminal TAS Factory Outlet 

Terminal TAS is well known for their bags, purses and shoes and also located along Jalan Riau. For the men, you can also find some gentlemen items available. Nothing to shout about in terms of brands, so no high expectations please.

I took a walk inside Terminal TAS but found nothing interesting that suits me. Then again for the working men and women, there seems to be quite a number of interesting items available. 

For Men Outlet Bandung

4. ForMen Factory Outlet

Finally a factory outlet only for the men is found along Jalan Riau and called ForMen Outlet. With a name like that, what else can you expect here? I couldn't help but walk in and to my surprise, everything for the man is in here.

From casual to well dressed, and to sleek suave office attire, you can find them all here. In general, you can get from head to toe apparels and accessories for men in this outlet.

So, for the women, please send your spouses to ForMen while you go crazy shopping at the many other factory outlets in Jalan Riau.

Branded Club Boutique Outlet Bandung

5. Branded Club Outlet

This outlet is located just after The Secret, and offers your regular clothing for men, women and also kids. You can probably find some interesting deals inside, provided you look hard. 

Overall, since you are walking along this main road, it is recommended to make a stop at Branded Club, just to check it out. 

The Summit Outlet Bandung

6. The Summit Factory Outlet

This factory outlet is one of the older ones, but doing really well with their product selection. A lot of locals and Malaysians like to visit this outlet as they do have a number of trendy fashion items here. 

The best part is that they are very affordable and you can even get good deals for men, women and kids at The Summit factory outlet.

My conclusion on the Jalan Riau Factory Outlets

This place is much better to spend your hard earned money than side street shopping in town area. The varieties available make life so much more interesting.

If your hubby is a Manchester United or Arsenal fan, then good for him. He can blow half his salary there to be the envy of his other MU buddies or YOU can simply do it for him.

As mentioned above about the brands, just be cautious about the super luxury labels as they are 99% most likely fakes. So, if it floats your boat, then why not? Go for it!

For the parents with kids, you will find these factory outlets a wonderland! There are just so many choices available for children with prices ranging from Rp.10,000 to Rp.50,000.

Jalan Riau Factory Outlet Information
  • Child Friendly: Yes, but with intensive walking and shopping, your kid is going to hit the sack after lunch.
  • Pram Friendly: There are walkways connecting most of the outlets.
  • Elderly Friendly: Because the Outlets are located along the main roads, there is some walking to do.
  • Wheelchair Friendly: Not really but you can get around.
  • Food Friendly: Plenty of hawkers around if you must eat. Otherwise, some of the outlet areas may have a restaurant or cafe.
  • Toilet Friendly: If I am not mistaken, all outlets have toilets inside which are decent and clean. None of that Malaysian style toilets.
  • Safety: Very safe in the Factory Outlet areas.
  • Road Crossing: Outlets are opposite each other on the main road so you will need to cross the roads. There is no Zebra Crossing. Anywhere will do.
  • Smoking: No smoking in the Outlets. But puff away outside if you must as ashtrays are provided.
Bandung Heritage Outlet
Probably one of the most popular outlets in Jalan Riau
For the serious shopper, you can also check out my Dago Factory Outlets as I have listed down most of the popular and worthwhile ones to visit. Usually when people visit Bandung, they would visit the three main areas where you can find these places. 

But the mother of all factory outlets in Bandung is no other than the Rumah Mode Factory Outlet. This is hands down the most popular factory outlet and everyone goes here so expect a huge crowd on weekends and holidays. 

If you are looking for hotel and van rental details, which includes prices and locations with contact numbers and email, please see my article about hotels in Bandung. Note some of the prices may have increased over the years too.

For anyone visiting Bandung and heading here, please do let me know if there are any updates on the Bandung factory outlet shopping at Jalan Riau.
